Cape Town - South Africa's Raven Klaasen and his New Zealand partner doubles partner Michael Venus have qualified for the final of the ATP Finals in London.

The pair beat Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah of Columbia in three sets, winning 6-7 (5/7), 7-6 (12-10) and 10-6. 

In a closely contested match, the 39 winners that Klaasen and Venus managed compared with just 27 of their opponents helped them to victory.

The pair also managed 10 aces.

They now wait on the second semi-final encounter between Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut of France who take on Lukasz Kubot (Poland) and Marcelo Melo (Brazil) to see who they will face in the final.
